Hyperspeed Your Suppers
Make the leap from the usual to the ingenious by taking prepared supermarket foods and creating something amazing.
Our first hyperspeed dinner is Spinach-Artichoke Pasta with Vegetables.
Easy Ravioli Lasagna
With ricotta cheese and spinach already tucked inside each ravioli, this is a shortcut way to a well-rounded lasagna. Classic meat sauce makes it über family-friendly.
Chicken and Pierogi Dumplings
The browned veggies lend color and flavor to the sauce; be sure to keep them moving in the pan so they don't get too brown.
Hummus-and-Rice Fritters with Mediterranean Salad
When using flour as a binder for things that are not baked, such as these pan-seared fritters, the finer grade of cake flour yields a creamier texture in the cooked product. If you don't have it, don't sweat it: You can just use all-purpose.
Fish Stick Tacos
To get an extra-crispy crust on the fish, we bake the sticks at a higher temperature than called for on the box.
Herbed Parmesan Potato Soup
Prepared mashed potatoes tend to come packed with a lot of sodium--too much for a side dish. Here we stretch them out into an entrée-sized soup that's creamy, cheesy, and brightened with fresh herbs.
